One of Sarai’s first attention-grabbing performances in the U.S. was in a two-episode story arc in the military crime procedural “NCIS”. She portrayed Liat Tuvia, a Mossad agent (Israeli Intelligence) hired by director Eli David (Michael Nouri) to fill a void left by his daughter, Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), when Ziva left to the join the NCIS team. Sarai more than held her own in these episodes.
Sarai started her career in a night-time Israeli sketch show called “Kol Layla”. She portrayed an American reporter and was well received enough to gain positive reviews from Israeli television critics, and she even continued the role after she moved the United States to take acting classes.
Before getting her guest appearance on “NCIS”, Sarai also has a guest role as a Russia spy the pilot episode of short-lived Christian Slater action series “My Own Worst Enemy”. Around that time, Sarai also scored her first major film role in the Stephen Dorff horror film, “The Passage”. Far from being the typical slasher fare, “The Passage” was entered into the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival, where Sarai was lauded for her star-making performance.
While Sarai continues to build her acting resume, she has also become an accomplished artist.

Now, for the really fun part: Sarai’s body art. Sarai makes no secret of her love of tattoos. She will not accept the regrettable practice of photographers airbrushing ink out of photo shoots.
